Episode 30 - Live from Standon Calling
This week’s News-Ish was a very special one; recorded live from Standon Calling! It kicked off with a lovely bit of audience interaction, which was helped by the rain bringing in festival revellers, much to the delight of Seann and Mark. As usual though, Seann’s mum was on the phone to deliver the latest dose of local news, including her visit to the animal hospital, and much, much, much more. Seann and Mark also delved into the problems of Fortnite, and introduced a new feature called ‘Can You Cross Your Legs’. Neither Seann and Mark could cross their legs, and neither could guest Jake Lambert, who was on weather duties. Seann also had a fight with a child and lost.
Episode 29 - Ken Cheng
Seann and Mark discussed aid, National Orgasm Day and death threats. We also got a deeper insight into what it was like growing up with Michael Walsh as your dad and who Mark’s favourite dictators are. On the phone to tell us the weather – although Seann almost didn’t let him – was the very funny Ken Cheng. His choice of song became very topical.
Episode 28 - Jon Harvey
Seann and Mark argued over bikes, the sun, the death penalty and pretty much every topic of conversation. This week’s Local News featured not just Seann’s parents, but a special guest and a whirlwind of a conversation. On the phone as this week’s weather reporter, we had producer, comedian and film fanatic Jon Harvey. Jon told us how he inspired a Tarantino film – wow!
Episode 27 - Graham Dickson
Seann and Mark discussed school teacher crushes, what would happen if Boris Johnson returned to government as Prime Minister and how ‘what’s your favourite colour’ is a key question in any important interview. Graham Dickson was this week’s weather reporter who explained all about his new show ‘Timber’ which is heading to Edinburgh this year.
Episode 26 - Ed Night
Newsish this week saw Seann and Mark talk about machetes, protesting of gay conversion therapy and of course the World Cup! Seann had a lot to say about toy guns and didn’t let Mark say too much about the conflict in South Sudan. As this week’s weather reporter, we had Ed Night who also filled us in on his Edinburgh show for 2018.
Episode 25 - Athena Kugblenu
They have returned! Seann and Mark, as always, provided us with the newest news now. They also brought us World Cup updates, talk of expanding airport runways and tales of farting on a kid’s face. You wouldn’t hear that anywhere else… On the phone to bring us the weather report was the uber funny Athena Kugblenu, who also told us of her upcoming Edinburgh show ‘Follow The Leader’.
